Music of love: Babyface

Thousands of people showed up at the Blaisdell Arena Monday night for R&B legend Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. If you weren’t there, then you missed out on an incredible performance that brought people memories of old-school music.

Babyface connected with audience members by telling stories of his personal life, his celebrity relationships and what inspired his style of songwriting. His performance started off with songs he had written for artists such as Bobby Brown and Boyz II Men. Although, the audience went crazy when he performed a medley of songs that included such top hits as, “Everytime I Close My Eyes,” “Whip Appeal,” and the hit with The Deele that helped launch his career, “Two Occasions.” He received a standing ovation from the crowd and performed one last song.

The 10-time Grammy Award winner still has his soulful voice, and gave a simple, but mind blowing performance. Not only did he remind people who came with a date that love is the main thing that keeps a relationship going, but he also told the single people that broken hearts do heal and gave hope to everyone that love still exists.

Who said that Valentine’s Day is only for couples? Me and my girls, Tia, Mel, Kim and Tiare, started our night at Side Street Inn before the concert.
